Hello Kyosho Racer....I live close to SERCCC and only get 1 hr a week for a run around the track.
What are your thoughts one the following:
Exhaust Manifold & Pipe:
I fitted my Nova Rossi tuned pipe...found I had to cut-off about .5 - .75" of manifold pipe so my Nova pipe would fit without hitting the front wheel. The stock exhaust was very short. Have you changed your pipe ? I also filed the entry to the exhaust manifold (where it fits onto the engine) as the slot was very small and seemed as it would limit the exhaust exiting the engine.
I also found the pipe mounting was crap...so I fitted a steel holder for the wire...see pic
Have you changed the stock pipe. ?
I fitted an additional two internal gears and filed it with 7000wt oil. My diff leaks so I will have to take it out and see if I can re-fit it. Maybe I didn't do the screws up tight enough, scared of stipping the threads. I know I seated the Oring correctly.
What have you done with your rear diff ?
Why does this spool style diff seem to work...
Do you run the front spool ?
I used the standard shock oil (I have no clue what wt it is) All I know is this car handles sooo much better than my SII I am hesitant to change it.
ANy idea's on what wt I should/could try for the dandy track or leave it alone?
I also run coolpower 20%...I found it easy to richen it up then just wind it in until the car accelerates and changes gears OK. Have not gone leaner past this point. Found the engine was running at 250 DegF last weekend. Did not notice the head purple at this temp.
Low End needle :
What about the low end needle.....I have left this stock position and if I squeeze off the fuel line it idles for the 3-4 seconds then cuts out. ANy improvement benifits if I start playing with the low end. ?
Noticed that the idle was high even when the carby was all but closed.
I'll keep my questions short this time !!!!
